Summer Revising

Version 2Since it’s summer and I spent decades in school, the schedule in my bones tells me I ought to be on vacation. I’m not, of course. I have work like the other grownups, so my bones have to be quiet and let me concentrate.

Today, I’m working on draft 5 of Vault 3, and the current challenge has to do with taking my existing scenes deeper and finding a way to thread in one of my characters who has so far preferred to stay on the sidelines. It’s tricky work and slow, but it beats first-drafting any day.

Blueberries

I’m also feeling inspired by the young writers I met last night at the Scotland Library. If they can play with ideas, so can I.

Incidentally, I like blueberries.
